Science fiction or (sci-fi) is a genre that includes creative fictional and thoughtful science-related events that are not believable by mainstream science as the events in these movies are shown extravagantly, such as alien encounters, observations over sensory, time travel, and futuristic elements such as spacecraft and robots. When these creative speculations blend with great literature, we enjoy a fabulous sci-fi experience. This genre had started in ancient times when people believed in myths more than facts.
Many filmmakers have impacted the viewers by their unique sci-fi concepts such as aliens traveling to Earth, protagonists’ time traveling, and ending up in the future encountering robots and spaceships. Its a whole new experience watching these kinds of concepts, and it also accomplishes its mission of making the viewers very curious about the world. We are so fond of this concept that we are never fully satisfied; it doesn’t matter the number of movies we watch. That’s the reason why I have compiled some of the best SciFi movies on Disney+ Hotstar for everyone to watch and enjoy their exciting concepts.
